For many complex trauma survivors, self-love feels like an impossibility - an unattainable ideal. While we long for the relief and comfort that self-love offers, what feels more familiar are the inner workings of shame and self-rejection. Without an understanding of complex trauma and its impacts on the brain, it is easy to see ourselves as a problem, broken and unlovable. I get that.


For many of us, the word love is tangled up with a lot of hard experiences that are difficult to understand. It makes sense that self-love would feel complicated when relational love has been traumatic and devastating. We might feel as though there is no hope for us, but there is.


I wrote this workbook to help complex trauma survivors tap into that hope. Love isn't an emotion. Love is a skillset - an approach - to how we relate to ourselves and others, and it can be learned. We have the capacity to grow ourselves into healthy ways of relating that bring peace, comfort, and fulfillment. I am excited to share with you what I have learned about self-love and the ways we can practice relating to ourselves in new ways.
